If you are thinking about having a small wedding with no more than 25 guests, there are many options available to you that wouldn't be available to a couple aiming at having a larger wedding. One example is a waterfall wedding. You will be able to say your vows with a waterfall as a backdrop.
Is a Waterfall Wedding Right for You?
A waterfall wedding is ideal for those couples who love nature and the outdoors. If you are able to find a day with excellent weather to have your wedding, the experience can be very pleasant. These types of weddings can also sometimes be less expensive than a traditional wedding venue. However, it is usually a type of wedding where you will need to relinquish some control because of how many variables usually exist. Still, your wedding will be very unique.
The best way to prepare for an outdoor wedding is to go on multiple trips to scout various locations. You may discover that one of the locations has the space you need and also has a very beautiful backdrop. You will also want to take into consideration whether you have any elderly guests and whether they have mobility issues that will affect their ability to attend the wedding.
What Kind of Package Should I Select?
If you will be having your waterfall wedding in a location such as the Caribbean, you might want to select an all-inclusive wedding package. When you purchase this type of package, the vendors will handle all aspects of your wedding. This can include catering, photography, videography, wedding invitations, and anything else you might need to have a destination wedding. This is great for couples who are busy and are happy to relinquish some control over their wedding for the sake of convenience.
Contact the venue beforehand to make sure that you do not need to bring anything. In many cases, the only aspects of the wedding you'll need to handle are the dress and your wedding rings. There may even be a nearby hotel that you can stay at.
To save money, you may be able to choose a wedding package during a time of the year when the location is experiencing an off-season. Then, you may have free services thrown in. You may be able to receive steep discounts on many of your services. However, what matters the most is that you have a wedding you will never forget.
